I want to acknowledge my deepest gratitude, respect, and admiration for all our KWF team. The positive morale and community service of our team members in these uncertain times — while many work in direct contact with the community — displays extraordinary courage and team spirit, especially as many service industries have been closed by state mandate.
Due to the nature of our business, we in the grocery retail industry are being called upon to perform an “essential service” for our communities; a role that we have always served in the past but that seems much more critical now that our services are being viewed as “a front line of defense and safety for promoting health and wellbeing to our customers.” We all feel the strain, but of what I have seen personally and heard from others, our amazing team has risen to the challenge and is working tirelessly to ensure that Kimberton Whole Foods remains open and available to serve our customers the best quality whole foods and healthy products.
We ask our customers to be patient with, courteous to, and thankful for our team members who continue to open our stores and serve the community.
Under normal circumstances, we embrace the community atmosphere our customers bring to Kimberton Whole Foods — found throughout the aisles of our store and in our cafes. During the current circumstances, when person-to-person interactions are limited in our everyday lives, we ask that you don’t see grocery stores as an exception. We also encourage our customers to shop without other members of their family during this time, if possible. Family shopping trips increase everyone’s risk including your family, our team members and other customers. Thank you.
